The Language Cottage

Chiara taught my children online for around 2 years, and has been amazing throughout. My children are English/ Italian bilingual, but we live overseas where they have limited opportunities to speak Italian outside the home. They were 8 and 3 when they started classes. Chiara tailored her classes to their ages and interests, made the classes interesting and fun, and really understands how to use the online medium to the best advantage. Even when my daughter was tired from school she would come out of the classes cheerful and lively, having enjoyed the lesson. Her Italian progressed enormously and she is completely comfortable reading, writing and speaking Italian in a way that would not have been possible without Chiara. What I appreciate the most is that she understands bilingual children have different language learning challenges and needs than an adult learning a foreign language, so she is able to tailor her classes accordingly. Now we are moving into an Italian speaking environment and I am confident that my children will cope. Thank you Chiara!

  • Tailored classes for bilingual children
  • Excellent use of online medium
  • Fun and interesting
  • She's very busy - can't really be flexible on timings

Online Italian Course

Chiara is amazing! She has endless energy and keep the classes fun so both my kids look forward to them…and so they are learning a lot.

For my 6 year old daughter - the lessons are really fun, interactive and topic based (eg. Restaurant, Christmas etc.).

For my 13 year old - the lessons focus more on grammar (she is getting him ready to take Italian iGCSE) but Chiara builds in as much interactivity as possible - and even manages to make grammar not boring!!

I can’t thank Chiara enough - without her my kids would not speak as much Italian.

Chiara è fantastica! Riesce a rendere le lezioni divertenti e così i miei due figli ci vanno volentieri e stanno imparando un sacco.

Chiara - grazie di cuore per tutto!! ❤️

  • Teaching in a fun way
  • Chiara has lots of energy
  • Great structure to the learning curriculum

Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Chiara's Italian lessons! Her material is always interesting and practical, which makes learning grammar much more fun. During our conversations, she always listens patiently and only makes corrections when it is necessary. At the end of every lesson, she sends all the material that we have covered in that class. Even though our lessons are online, I can feel her energy, enthusiasm and passion through the screen. Above all, she is kind and lovely teacher and I'll definitely keep on taking lessons with her.

  • engaging material
  • enthusiastic and patient teacher

The Language Cottage

Consiglio vivamente le lezioni con la Maestra Chiara.
Mia figlia di 7 anni frequenta assiduamente da più di un anno ed ogni volta è entusiasta di partecipare.
Chiara, con la sua competenza, riesce a preparare delle lezioni che divertono i bambini ed al contempo fa loro apprendere la lingua.
Mia figlia frequenta il corso on line con altre 3-4 bambine della sua età; non è facile mantenere viva la loro attenzione per un’ora ma la lezione passa velocemente, imparando parole nuove e frasi di senso compiuto attraverso un gioco, con una canzone o con una storiella di volta in volta diversa.

The language cottage, koh sa mui, Thailand

I have been attached with this language school doing online class since 2020, I am still doing the online Italian classes. Chiara is my teacher, she is Italian and she does the lesson so well that you will not want to quit or absent for her lesson. All these 3 years I never absent unless if it is really necessary.
Prof. Chiara knows very well how to make you understand those complicated grammar lessons and she does it over and over again until it is definitely understood.
Trust me, I have tried one or two more language teachers online and in person but I still preferred Chiara to them. Now I can read and understand grammar well.
As a teacher Prof. Chiara is very dedicated and very very helpful. No matter how many times, she is always there to help you with your lessons.
With doing online classes I have come this far with the Italian language and I always imagine how it will be to attend the class in person with Chiara. 🎉 Bravo to the language school. They will go very far in the future 👍👍👍

Very useful and fun lessons

I’m studying Thai language with teacher Jom.
This course is very useful, because we learn not only grammar, but many basic phrases which can be used in daily life.
There are 7 people in my group, atmosphere is very friendly and relaxing, we have a lot of fun. Teacher Jom is very energetic and helpful, he’ll make you speak Thai from the first lesson. Class schedule is quite convenient, it’s 2 hours twice a week.
I’m glad that I’ve chosen Mind your language school. After just two months I already can have basic conversation in Thai language.

Great school!

Translated by Go Overseas:
I am very glad that I found this school of languages. I have been studying Thai for about 2 months. I experience only positive emotions! I didn't think learning a language could be so much fun. I work out 2 times a week for 2 hours. I started speaking some basic phrases in informal communication already in the second or third lesson. Classes are held in an easy format and of course with materials that are issued before the start of the course. After 3 weeks, I remember how I spoke in the street in Thai absolutely uncontrollably and easily. It was a shock for me. My teacher Jom is just great! Recommend 100%

Original review:
Я очень рад тому, что нашел эту школу языков. Изучаю тайский язык около 2-х месяцев. Испытываю только положительные эмоции! Не думал, что изучения языка может быть таким веселым занятием. Я занимаюсь 2 раза в неделю по 2 часа. Какие то базовые фразы я начал говорить в неформальном общении уже на второй или третий урок. Занятия проходят в легком формате и конечно же с материалами которые выдаются перед началом курса. Через недели 3 помню как я заговорил на улице на тайском языке абсолютно неконтролируемо и легко. Это был шок для меня. Мой преподаватель Jom просто великолепен! Рекомендую 100%

  • Программа
  • Непринужденный формат
  • Классный преподаватель
  • Много занятий в удаленном формате (covid 19 видимо еще), а можно было бы чаще встречаться

Study Thai on line

I am currently studying Thai with Mr Jom Nawa. Before the Coronavirus we met at school for the lessons. Now we study online. I am sitting at my home and so do all the others. We are 4 to 5 people in class now and it works very well. I have been trying to learn Thai for a number of years and for a number of different teachers but khun Jom is outstandingly the best.
